Reception of the Carmelite Novice

Sister Helena - Sunday, February 14, 2016

On February 14, 2016 at 9:30 am, on the First Sunday of Lent, the Carmelite Sisters received a new novice, Sr. Mary Philomena Anne of Divine Mercy, O.Carm.  The Reception Ceremony was held in private at St. Teresa’s Chapel located at St. Teresa’s Motherhouse in Germantown, New York.  Father Paul Denault, O.Carm. was the celebrant.  The Reception Ceremony is held after the Postulant completes her eight months of living the life of the Congregation.  She is then received into the Congregation as a Novice and given the Carmelite habit, her religious name and the Rule and Constitutions of the Congregation.

We join Sr. Philomena Anne in this happy occasion and pray that her journey in Carmel will be blessed and bear abundant fruits for the glory of God!
